Annual Juried Photo Show

25th Annual Juried Photography Exhibit – 2019

The 25th Annual Juried Photography Exhibit reception will be held on Saturday, March 16, from 6:30-8:30 pm, at the Fremont Main Library, 2nd floor, 2400 Stevenson. This event is free to the general public, and attendees can vote for their favorite photo for the ‘People’s Choice’ award. Light refreshments will be served. Photos will be on display at the library through Saturday, April 13.

This annual juried show is open to all photographers who are Fremont residents, students, employees, members of the FCAC or of the Fremont Photographic Society. Images submitted may be manipulated but all image contents must be the creation of the photographer and the image must be primarily photographic in nature, and acceptable for general viewing. The panel of judges will determine acceptability.

Photographs may be submitted for judging at the Fremont Cultural Arts Council office, 3375 Country Drive, Fremont CA 94538 on Saturday February 23, from 10 am – 4 pm and Sunday, February 24 from 1-5 pm. Judges will base their decisions on Artistic Merit, Originality, Difficulty and Technical Aspects, and decision of the judges is final.

All prints, color or black and white (including digital), must be at least 5″ x 7″ (with frames no smaller than 8″ x 10″) and must not be larger than 16″ x 20″ (with frames no larger than 20″ x 24″). Prints must be framed, under glass or acrylic, and ready for hanging with wire on back (no sawtooth hangers!); eye screws must not protrude beyond the frame back. To reduce weight, frames larger than 16″ x 20″ should be covered with acrylic, not glass. No slides or digital files will be accepted. Each photographer can submit up to 5 prints.
